Ithaca College will be conducting a regular test of the Emergency Notification System (ENS) and Outdoor Warning System (OWS) at noon on Thursday, April 23. There is no need to take any action in response to the test. Even though there are few students and employees on campus during this period of remote instruction, the systems need to be tested once each semester.

The ENS uses voice, e-mail, and IC Alert text messaging to provide information and instructions in the event of a campus emergency. The OWS uses a siren tone and loudspeaker to supplement the message for those on campus.

In recent years, there has been a growing awareness of a need to update music curriculum to better prepare musicians for the careers and needs of the 21st century. There are increasing demands for today’s musicians to be entrepreneurially savvy, technologically adept, and cross-culturally responsive and inclusive. In addition, there is mounting interest to cultivate general creativity and integrative learning. While the new century requires new skills, there is a concomitant expectation that today’s musicians be equally or even more adept at traditional areas of expertise, including technical skills required for artistic expression in performance, and general musicianship and analysis. This essay examines the challenges to curricular review and describes a way forward based upon best practices of organizational change and transforming institutional cultures.
